respectively. Persons who use a telecommunication device for the deaf

leave a message for Mr. Bechdolt or Mr. Brown. You may also review the 
information collection request online at http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501-
3521) and OMB regulations at 5 CFR part 1320 provide that an agency may 
not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a 
currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of 
information, you are not obligated to respond. In order to obtain and 
renew an OMB control number, Federal agencies are required to seek 
public comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities 
(see 5 CFR 1320.8(d) and 1320.12(a)).
    As required at 5 CFR 1320.8(d), the BLM published a 60-day notice 
in the Federal Register on January 31, 2013 (78 FR 6830), and the 
comment period ended April 1, 2013. The BLM received no comments.
    The BLM now requests comments on the following subjects:
    1. Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper functioning of the BLM, including whether the information will 
have practical utility;
    2. The accuracy of the BLM's estimate of the burden of collecting 
the information, including the validity of the methodology and 
assumptions used;
    3. The quality, utility and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and
    4. How to minimize the information collection burden on those who 
are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other forms of information technology.
    Please send comments as directed under ADDRESSES and DATES. Please 
refer to OMB control number 1004-0001 in your correspondence. Before 
including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal 
identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your 
entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 
comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public 
review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
    The following information is provided for the information 
collection:
    Title: Free Use Application and Permit for Vegetative or Mineral 
Materials (43 CFR Parts 3600, 3620, and 5510).
    OMB Control Number: 1004-0001.
    Summary: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) collects information 
from respondents for free use permits for vegetative or mineral 
materials in order to: (1) Determine whether the applicant is eligible 
for free use; (2) determine whether the vegetative or mineral materials 
at issue qualify for free use; (3) determine whether free use is 
consistent with pertinent land use plans and authorities; and (4) 
monitor the authorized removal and uses of vegetative and mineral 
materials to ensure sustainable resource management and verify that the 
actual use is consistent with the authorization. At present, the BLM 
uses the same form for free use of both vegetative and mineral 
materials. In this request, the BLM seeks approval to use one form for 
vegetative materials, and a different form for mineral materials.
    Frequency of Collection: On occasion.
    Proposed Forms:
     Form 3604-1, Free Use Application and Permit For Mineral 
Material; and
     Form 5510-1, Free Use Application and Permit for 
Vegetative Material.

authorization for free use of mineral or vegetative materials.
